Big Dreamers Festival, The Angel Centre, 14 Angel Place, Worcester, WR1 3QN

The Big Dreamers Writing Competition has been created with the aim of inspiring young people to use creative writing to express their thoughts and opinions on important topics. Creative writing, in any form, can be a powerful way of communication and we want to hear what you have to say.

THE COMPETITION

 

We have compiled 15 sketches by artists Hipkiss & Graney. We want you to come up with a written response to any or all of the sketches.


The piece of writing can take any form you like. It can be a poem, a story, a script - anything you can think of.

The closing date for all entries is Friday 20th December 2019
